VIDEO GAME NEWS: Runescape Announces Legacy Mode - Jagex
Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs, Our friends at Jagex have let us know about the new Legacy Mode for Runescape. Here's what they had to say:
Jagex Games Studio, makers of the
multi-award winning fantasy MMORPG, RuneScape, today announced that
following a landslide vote Legacy Mode has been launched into the game.
Development of Legacy Mode, an alternative to 2012’s Evolution of Combat
system, started earlier this year following a Power to the Players poll
where it gained 80% of the player vote.
introduction of the new mode, which offers a more traditional look and
old style of combat gameplay, was beta tested by players whose feedback
has shaped the development of this feature.
to the Players has been a hugely successful initiative,” said Phil
Mansell, executive producer for RuneScape. “It has really empowered our
players to work collaboratively with us to make RuneScape the best it
can be. It has truly democratised our development process and given our
players the means to decide how the game evolves. Some of those
features, like Legacy Mode, are changes we didn’t originally plan but
which the players have voted to say how important it is to them. This
has made Legacy Mode particularly exciting for us as it shows what’s
possible when the community is given the power to make large-scale
decisions about their game”
continued: “The new mode allows players, particularly our veteran
players, to engage in combat in a style that they are familiar with,
whilst still being able to play side-by-side with those who prefer the
faster pace of Evolution of Combat.”
to the Players is an initiative implemented by Jagex that allows
players to direct and shape future content within RuneScape. Since its
launch earlier this year over 50 separate votes have been put to the
players, ranging from top tier content such as the upcoming Elf City
expansion, all the way down to smaller quality of life improvements.
